For the month of June, students from Alexis Starke’s Library Art Classes will exhibit work created during their winter and spring sessions. In these free after school classes, young people from grades 1 through 9 have explored a variety of art media and styles. Through this show, they will also learn about mounting an exhibit of their work and celebrating with a reception.
Students have found inspiration from art history and from the beautiful village of Piermont and the Hudson River. Included in the exhibit will be "story quilts" inspired by Faith Ringgold; cut paper collages inspired by Henri Matisse; self portraits inspired by the Fauvists; and papier mache totem poles inspired by the Native Peoples of the Pacific Northwest.
